Mystic, CT  2016

It's been a full 30 days since I posted my last picture of a yacht so here is this month's mega-yacht.  I came across the Impetuous during my last photo walk around Mystic.  She's 120 feet long has a crew of 4 and can accommodate 9 guests in 4 cabins.  Some amenities include a 17' tender, 2, two-man wave runners,  snorkeling gear, waveboards and other towables.   You can charter this yacht for a mere $60,000/wk...... plus expenses.

Mystic, CT  2016

A new bar will be opening soon in Mystic in this converted service station.  I first featured this service station back in March 2014 in this blog and it can be found here.  It looks like the new owners  have kept the key features of the service station, including the large garage doors,  the canopy over where the gas pumps used to be, and the large price sign.  I'm glad to see these buildings being re-purposed, but I wonder if Mystic really needs a new bar.  I guess I'll have to check it out after it opens.

Old House

Mystic, CT  2016

There is nothing sadder than a grand old house that nobody seems to want anymore.  When I see places like this, I wonder what it would've looked like when it was a home.

I didn't capture all of photographer's Joe Standart's work currently on display in the vacant store front windows in New London.  I'll leave you with these final images.
